All of a sudden I can only access one of my iTunes accounts (I have four, don't ask). What gives? Was there some sort of mass purging of accounts?

Can't access my US account either. No sense in panicking until we know what's going on though.

Wait, no... change that... now I can't log back in to the account I was just logged into ten minutes ago... something is definitely bugged or screwed at the moment.

So it's probably the same as it has been every other time - it's a problem with the store for everyone, not a mass purge of accounts.

Don't get too worried yet folks:

iTunes not accepting password (http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1821593&tstart=0)

Seems something has gone bunk at Apple's end. Other stores around the world are also having issues. Maybe someone let a cat into the server room? LOLcats attack!

Just out of interest, is it cheaper to buy music on the US site or the Oz site at the moment? With dollar I'd have thought the price would be almost the same.

you can often buy us cards a bit cheaper than they are worth, e.g $65us for a $80us card.

don't want to buy to cheap ones though, they tend to be bought with stolen credit cards = suspended account

I think there was an issue with gift cards, as I could log in, but when I went to buy something, it sat and loaded forever, before telling me gift cards currently do not work and to check back later.

On the same topic, I have old mp3s. Some were coded at different bit rates. So it gets loud when playing the next songs. Some are my all time favourites, you guys think it is feasible to get a copy from itune? I have already spent $250.00 this week. Only have like 6 albums and 2 tv shows and 1 movie shows. I was thinking to get all the songs that I'd love..maybe all up is about $1,000.

With itunes I can just download from different computers if I have to and wouldnt have to worry about losing my data as i can always download again. Let me know if you guys think its worth buying from itunes or should i save the dough and stick with my crappy bitrate music.

Edit: I'm also having problems downloading large files. I am currently on 512k satellite broad band. it can sometimes download for hours without a problem, but sometimes for 1 hr and it'll start coming up with some error for download. If im not around, i lose alot of time. help please.
